I'll start off by saying i am a Metallica fan. When I heard that MTV was going to honor them by giving them the 'ICON' award, I took it as good news....
The show itself was somewhat worth the viewing. The covers of the 'Tallica songs we not of the best, but they could have gotten worse. The 5 part documentary that was shown really highlighted Metallica's 20+ year carrer. From the days with Dave Mustaine, to MOP and Cliff's death, to the making of the famous 'Black Album', the doc really did the show justice. Metallica's ending performance was worth the wait alone, as they did a meldely of 'Hit the Lights', 'Creeping Death', 'Blackened', 'Enter Sandman', and 'Battery'. After that, James proclams "We may be ICONs, but we're not done yet." Then they kick into 'Frantic' from their new upcoming album 'St. Anger'
Overall, MTV ICON: Metallica was a decent show, but with all the nu-metal artists and rappers ruining their masterpiece songs, it's not the best show MTV has ever done.
